General Questions


Does the CDC Import Permit Program track laboratory-acquired infections associated with imported infectious biological agents?

The CDC Import Permit Program does not currently track this information. 


When did the Final Rule - Foreign Quarantine; Import Regulations for Infectious Bio logical Agents, Infectious Substances, and Vectors become effective and where can I find a copy of the rule?

The amendments for 42 C.F.R. § 71.54 (Import regulations for infectious biological agents, infections substances, and vectors) promulgated in the docket entitled Foreign Quarantine; Import Regulations for Infectious Biological Agents, Infectious Substances, and Vectors, became effective on April 5, 2013.  A copy of the rule can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/od/eaipp/index.htm


Is an import permit required for blood containing Plasmodium falciparum?

Yes.  Blood containing Plasmodium falciparum would meet the definition of infectious biological agent (a microorganism including, but not limited to, bacteria (including rickettsiae), viruses, fungi, or protozoa, or prion, whether naturally occurring, bioengineered, or artificial, or a component of such microorganism or prion that is capable of causing communicable disease in a human) and would require a CDC Import Permit.


Is an import permit required for a human urine sample being imported for drug testing purposes?

Probably not.  Diagnostic specimens that are not known by the importer to contain, or suspected by the importer of containing, an infectious biological agent and is accompanied by an importer certification statement confirming that the material is not known to contain or suspected of containing an infectious biological agent, or has been rendered noninfectious would not require CDC Import Permit.


Is an import permit required to import unregulated amount of a select toxin?  Note:  An “unregulated amount” of a select toxin would be those amounts listed in 42 CFR § 73.3(d)(3). 

No.  CDC Import Permit Program does not currently regulate the importation of a toxin. 


Is an import permit required for a diagnostic specimen that is suspected to contain a select agent?

Yes.  Any diagnostic specimen known, or suspected by the importer of containing, any infectious biological agent would require a CDC Import Permit. 


Is an import permit required to import dead animals not known to be infectious to humans?

No.  Animal or animal not known to contain (or suspected of containing) an infectious biological agent or has been rendered noninfectious would not require a CDC Import Permit.   However, other regulations may apply to the importation of this material.


Is an import permit required to import adult worms which cannot infect humans? 

No. Organisms or parasites that are not infectious to humans do not require a CDC Import Permit  However, other regulations may apply to the importation of this material.


Is an import permit required to import a select agent or toxin or transfer the material within the United States?

No.  A CDC import permit is not required for select agents and toxins listed in 42 CFR §§ 73.3, .4 or 9 CFR § 121.4 as long as its importation has been authorized in accordance with 42 CFR § 73.16 or 9 CFR § 121.16.


Is an import permit required to import material that has received approval from U.S. Food and Drug Administration?

No.  Any product that is cleared, approved, licensed, or otherwise authorized under any of the following laws would not require a CDC Import Permit:

  • The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 301 et seq.), or
  • Section 351 of the Public Health Service Act pertaining to biological products (42 U.S.C. 262), or
  • The Virus-Serum-Toxin Act (21 U.S.C. 151-159).

Is an import permit required to import genomic material?

Possibly.

Nucleic acids that can produce infectious forms of any infectious biological agent would require a CDC import permit.  For example, viral genomes which consist of positive sense RNA are infectious when the purified viral RNA is applied to permissive cells in the absence of any viral proteins.  In some cases, viral genomes which are composed of double-stranded DNA are also infectious (e.g., genome of Cercopithecine Herpesvirus 1 (Herpes B virus)).  

Nucleic acids that cannot produce infectious forms of any infectious biological agent and are accompanied by an importer certification statement confirming that the material is not known to contain or suspected of containing an infectious biological agent would not require a CDC Import Permit.


Is an import permit required for infectious biological agent after dosing the infectious biological agent with an investigational new drug product under review by U.S. Food and Drug Administration?

Yes.  Any sample known, or suspected by the importer of containing, an infectious biological agent would require a CDC Import Permit.  This product would not meet the exemption because the product is not approved or cleared by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 301 et seq.).

However, if the material is accompanied by an importer certification statement confirming that the material is not known to contain or suspected of containing an infectious biological agent, or has been rendered noninfectious it would not require CDC Import Permit.


What if my facility receives an infectious biological agent, infectious substance, or vector that is not listed on my CDC import permit?

You should safeguard the material from theft, loss, or release, and immediately report the incident to the CDC Import Permit Program at: email (importpermit@cdc.gov) or telephone ((404) 718-2077). 


Does the CDC Import Permit Program regulate the exportation of infectious biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors of human disease outside the United States?

No.  However, please note that the exportation of biological agents of human, plant, and animal diseases may require a license from the Department of Commerce. Information may be obtained by calling the Department of Commerce Bureau of Export Administration at 202-482-4811 or through the internet at: www.bis.doc.gov/Licensing.


Where can I find the “Guidance for Importation of Human Remains into the United States for Interment or Subsequent Cremation?”

“Guidance for Importation of Human Remains into the United States for Interment or Subsequent Cremation” is available at: http://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/human-remains.html


How would an importer know if authorization for subsequent transfers of imported materials within the United States is needed?

If the CDC Import Permit Program requires an additional permit for subsequent transfers of any infectious biological agent, infectious substance or vector within the United States, the requirement will be listed as a condition of issuance on the import permit in block 5. 

To initiate the process for an additional permit, the recipient must submit an application to the CDC Import Permit Program.  Application forms are available at the following link:
CDC - EAIPP-Import Permit Applications.  


Does a recipient within the United States need a CDC Import Permit to receive an infectious biological agent, infectious substance or vector from a facility that imported the material if the condition was indicated on the issued permit for the importer? 

Yes.  Since the requirement for approval of subsequent transfers of imported materials within the United States was noted as a condition on the issued permit to the importer, the recipient is required to obtain a CDC Import Permit to receive this material. 

To initiate the process for a permit, the facility would need to submit an application to the CDC Import Permit Program.  Application forms are available at the following link:
CDC - EAIPP-Import Permit Applications.  


Will the CDC Import Permit Program website provide a list of infectious biological agents that require a CDC import permit?

There are no plans to provide a complete list of all infectious biological agents that require an import permit on the website.  If you have a question regarding whether or not an agent that you plan to import is considered infectious, feel free to contact the CDC Import Permit Program by email (importpermit@cdc.gov), fax ((404) 718-2093) or mail:

CDC Import Permit Program
1600 Clifton Rd, Mailstop A-46
Atlanta, GA 30333


Besides a CDC Import Permit, when would a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) permit be needed for importing an infectious biological agent, infectious substance or vector?

The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) permits are required for the import, transit and release of regulated animals, animal products, veterinary biologics, plants, plant products, pests, organisms, soil, and genetically engineered organisms.  Information on the APHIS permitting requirements is available at: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/permits/index.shtml


Will CDC and APHIS combine programs since both programs issue permits?

No. There are no plans to combine the CDC and APHIS permitting programs. 


How long is an import permit valid to import infectious biological agent, infectious substance or vector into the United States?

A permit to import, or receive through subsequent transfer is valid only for the time period indicated on the issued permit.  The issuance and expiration dates located on the import permit pertain only to the dates that the importer is allowed to import into the United States the infectious biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors listed on the import permit. The conditions for importation and continued possession listed on the permit remain in effect until the importer is no longer in possession of the imported material.

Please note that all requests for renewal of an existing import permit require the submission of a new application and current signature of the permittee. To prevent lapses in the import permit status, it is recommended that permit renewal applications be submitted at least 60 days prior to the expiration date on the current permit.


Is there a requirement for maintaining records of imported shipments for a specific amount of time?

There is no regulatory requirement in the import permit regulations for maintaining records of shipments for a specific amount of time.  However, CDC Import Permit Program recommends that the permittee maintain records of shipments until the importer is no longer in possession of the imported material.   


If our facility does not plan to receive any more imported material from outside the United States, does our facility have to renew our permit?

If your facility will no longer be importing infectious biological agents, infectious substances, or vectors of human disease into the United States, your facility should not complete an application to renew your facility’s import permit. However, the conditions specified on the permit apply until you no longer possess the material.


Does the issuance of CDC import permit allow the importee to “hand carry” the imported material into the United States?>

No.  The issuance of an import permit is not an authorization to hand carry the imported material into the United States.  The shipment of infectious biological agents, infectious substances, or vectors of human disease into the United States must be packaged, labeled, and shipped in accordance with all federal and international regulations.  


How does my facility find methods for rendering agents non-infectious?

The facility should use a scientifically supportable method.  The method used to cause permanent loss of biological activity must be reliable and based on the agent's sensitivity to the inactivant. An acceptable method may consist of traditional methods that have been generally recognized in the scientific community and published in the scientific literature or a method developed in-house, but that method should be validated as applied. The method may stand as a separate laboratory protocol or standard operating procedure or be incorporated into the laboratory biosafety manual. While there is no requirement to notify CDC prior to rendering an agent non-infectious, the facility should incorporate a practice of maintaining records on file in support of materials being non-infectious.


Where can I find information on Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), the viral respiratory illness first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012, including recommendations for safety working with the virus?

Information from CDC on the MERS CoV is available at: http://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/mers/.


What is the process if my permit request gets denied, suspended or revoked?

An applicant who wishes to make an appeal would have 30 calendar days after receiving the denial to submit the appeal in writing to the CDC Director. The appeal must state the factual basis for the appeal and provide any supporting documentations to justify the appeal (e.g., documents that demonstrate the facility has the appropriate biosafety measures in place for working safely with requested imported material). CDC will issue a written response, which would constitute final agency action.

The applicant can submit the appeal to the CDC Director through the CDC Import Permit Program by email (importpermit@cdc.gov), fax ((404) 718-2093) or mail:

CDC Import Permit Program

Will the presentations from the webinar be posted on the website?

Yes, the presentations are available at:  http://www.cdc.gov/od/eaipp/whatsnew/index.htm

What type of material requires a CDC Import Permit?

Infectious biological agent - A microorganism (including, but not limited to, bacteria (including rickettsiae), viruses, fungi, or protozoa) or prion, whether naturally occurring, bioengineered, or artificial, or a component of such microorganism or prion that is capable of causing communicable disease in a human.

Infectious substance- Any material that is known or reasonably expected to contain an infectious biological agent.

Vector - Any animals (vertebrate or invertebrate) including arthropods or any noninfectious self-replicating system (e.g., plasmids or other molecular vector) or animal products (e.g., a mount, rug, or other display item composed of the hide, hair, skull, teeth, bones, or claws of an animal) that are known to transfer or are capable of transferring an infectious biological agent to a human.

Animals – Any member of the animal kingdom except a human including an animal product (e.g., a mount, rug, or other display item composed of the hide, hair, skull, teeth, bones, or claws).

Arthropods – Any living insect including crustaceans, spiders, scorpions, etc. capable of being a host or vector of human disease.

Snails – Any freshwater snails (phylum Mollusca, class Gastropoda) capable of transmitting schistosomiasis.

Bats – All live bats. See below for further information on obtaining an import permit for live bats. Bats may also require a permit from the U.S. Department of Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service. For additional information, see http://www.fws.gov/permits/importexport/importexport.shtml

Non-human primate material – all non-human primate material (e.g. blood, plasma, tissue, urine, feces) requires an import permit, unless it has been specifically treated and rendered non-infectious.

Inspection Questions


Will my facility be inspected prior to issuance of an import permit?

Possibly.  The criteria used to determine those “high-risk” entities to be inspected include facilities that applied to import infectious biological agents which are capable of causing serious or potentially lethal disease in humans via the aerosol route.  Laboratories that have been  inspected by either HHS/CDC or the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA/APHIS) under the HHS or USDA select agent regulations (42 CFR Part 73, 9 CFR Part 121, or 7 CFR Part 331) will probably not require an additional inspection.  Inspections are be conducted to ensure that the importer has biosafety measures in place that are commensurate with the hazard posed by the infectious biological agent, infectious substance, and/or vector to be imported, and the level of risk given its intended use. 


What areas will CDC inspect as it relates to my import permit application? 

The CDC’s Import Permit Program will only inspect those rooms associated with the import permit application to evaluate whether the importer’s biosafety measures (e.g., physical structure and features of the facility, and operational and procedural safeguards) are commensurate with the hazard posed by the infectious biological agent, infectious substance, and/or vector, and the level of risk given its intended use.


How will my facility be notified if an inspection is required?

Upon review of the application for import permit, the CDC Import Permit Program will contact your facility if an inspection is needed.  The notification will be by telephone and then followed up by an official “Notice of Inspection” letter.


Will checklists be published for entities to review prior to inspections?

The CDC’s Import Permit Program will post its inspection checklists on the CDC’s Import Permit Program website.


What are the criteria for when a facility will be inspected by the CDC Import Permit Program?

The criteria used to determine those “high-risk” entities to be inspected include facilities that applied to import infectious biological agents which are capable of causing serious or potentially lethal disease in humans via the aerosol route.  Facilities that have been  inspected by either HHS/CDC or the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA/APHIS) under the HHS or USDA select agent regulations (42 CFR Part 73, 9 CFR Part 121, or 7 CFR Part 331) will probably not require an additional inspection.  Inspections are be conducted to ensure that the importer has biosafety measures in place that are commensurate with the hazard posed by the infectious biological agent, infectious substance, and/or vector to be imported, and the level of risk given its intended use.

Bat Questions


Is an import permit required for importation and transfer of live bats?

Yes.  CDC limits the importation of bats under the authority of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 264) based on the significant public health risks associated with bats.  Specifically, bats are known carriers of germs that cause communicable and other diseases in humans. The most significant of these germs are Nipah virus and viruses that cause communicable diseases such as Ebola, Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever, Sudden Acute Severe Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), and rabies. 


Is an import permit required to transfer bats within the United States?

The CDC Import Permit Program requires an additional permit for subsequent transfers of live bats within the United States.  This requirement is listed as a condition indicated on the issued permit.  To initiate the process for an additional permit, the facility would need to submit the “Application for Permit to Import or Transport Live Bats” (provide hyperlink to http://www.cdc.gov/od/eaipp/importApplication/bats.htm). 


What are the requirements for importation of live bats into the United States?

An importer must demonstrate appreciation for the many risks which bats pose to the public health and all efforts taken to protect the importer and the public from such risks. In order to make the determination that an importer will protect public health, through this notice, and in addition to a completed application, CDC requires:

  • A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) describing how the bats will be cared for, what personal protective equipment (PPE) will be worn during care, how the cages and exhibit will be cleaned and how the waste will be handled for both the quarantine period and post quarantine;
  • An SOP describing how the bats will be contained and how escapes will be prevented;
  • An SOP for veterinary care, including procedures for what will be done with sick or dead bats, including a necropsy when a bat dies;
  • An SOP of an Occupational Health Plan including a risk assessment for exposure and a plan should an exposure occur;
  • An SOP explaining that the bats will not be re-distributed after importation; and
  • An SOP detailing what will be done with the Bats when they are no longer being used for Science, Education, or Exhibition.

What application do I need to complete if I wish to import live bats or transfer live bats within the United States?

The “Application for Permit to Import or Transport Live Bats” (provide hyperlink to http://www.cdc.gov/od/eaipp/importApplication/bats.htm) is for the importation and/or transport of live bats within the United States.

General Questions about Transport


What are some of the specific measures required to ensure that infectious biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors are shipped safely?

The specific measures required to ensure that infectious biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors are shipped safely are included in the Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR Parts 171-180).  A condensed version of these measures can be found in the CDC/NIH publication Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories.


What happens if a package containing an infectious biological agent, infectious substance, and vector is lost or damaged during shipment?

Requirements for All Infectious Substances

The DOT regulations (49 CFR 171.15 and 171.16) require each person in physical possession of a hazardous material, including an infectious substance, to report specific types of transportation incidents that involve these materials. Immediate reporting by telephone to the National Response Center at 1-800-424-8802 is required for incidents where fire, breakage, spillage, or suspected contamination occurs that involves the shipment of infectious substances other than a patient specimen or regulated medical waste ( See 49 CFR 171.15(b)(3)). In addition, a written report to DOT is required within 30 days of the discovery of the incident for any unintentional release of hazardous material from a packaging during transportation, including those covered under 49 CFR 171.15 ( See 49 CFR 171.16(a)). DOT regulations also require packages that contain infectious substances to be accompanied by several forms of hazard communication, as applicable, as well as labeled to indicate the infectious hazard (See 49 CFR 172.432 for a depiction of the required label). This label currently includes a statement for reporting a damaged package.

The WHO "Guidance on Regulations for the Transport of Infectious Substances," January 2009, available at http://www.who.int/csr/resources/publications/biosafety/WHO_HSE_EPR_2008_10/en/, also provides specific recommended procedures for spill cleanup. This guidance is available to the agencies that govern land, vessel, and air shipments. The recommended procedures reflect those contained in the WHO Laboratory Biosafety Manual, Third Edition, 2004. The manual can be found at: http://www.who.int/csr/resources/publications/biosafety/WHO_CDS_CSR_LYO_2004_11/en/.


What are the specific regulations that govern the shipment of infectious substances?

There are several domestic and international regulations that govern the shipment of infectious substances. These include:

Domestic Regulations

  • Department of Transportation. 49 CFR Part 171-180, Hazardous Materials Regulations . Applies to the shipment of infectious substances in commercial transportation to, from, or within the United States. These regulations also authorize, with certain conditions and limitations, the commercial transportation of hazardous materials in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organization's Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO Technical Instructions), the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code), Transport Canada's Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (Transport Canada TDG Regulations), and the International Atomic Energy Agency Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (IAEA Regulations).
